MIP recognizes that manual repositioning exposes caregivers to increased risk of neck, shoulder, and back injuries. That’s why we have developed the Swift® UltraSlide System, a cost-effective, low-friction repositioning system intended to allow caregivers to safely and easily perform manual handling tasks with little physical strain. Implementing the standard use of this system will create a safer healthcare environment for caregivers, ensure the comfort and security of patients/residents, and assist in supporting your facility’s no-lift policies.
The UltraSlide® Bottom Sheet is designed using MIP’s patented Smart Sheet design (Standard) and patented Envelope design (Bariatric) with an integrated low-friction panel down the centre. UltraSlide is ideal for patients/residents who are nearly independent with bed mobility as the low-friction surface allows them to move themselves more easily in bed.
The Swift UltraSlide System uses the UltraSlide® Bottom Sheet in conjunction with the Swift® Sliders for use with more dependent patients/residents who have little or no mobility and require extensive or total assistance for repositioning.
The stretch SleepKnit® construction provides a smooth surface and fits most healthcare mattress (standard & bariatric) including profiling beds & alternating air pressure reducing mattresses:
– Standard: Width: 32″ to 36″ (81 to 91 cm) Length: 78″ to 84″ (198 to 213 cm) Depth: 4″ to 8″ (10 to 20 cm)
– Bariatric: Width: 42” to 50” (107 to 127 cm) Length: 78”to 84” (198 to 213 cm) Depth: 5” to 9” (13 to 23 cm)
For all repositioning and manual handling solutions it is recommended to seek advice / approval from a manual handling expert.
